Software Deployment Question
Best software to deploy packages across a schoolnet work.
Hi i am new to this sight so dont be too harsh please, I have been tasked with buying package deployment software by the end of February. We are running Win 7 64 bit on the network PC's and server 2008 R2, all PC's are on the same network and subnet. I need to be able to deploy packages such as (Wizards apprentice, Noddy, office 2010) which save data to the public drive on the server while other programs sit on the local PC. The budget is up to £6000 with support but it has to work and be reasonably easy to use. Any pointers or help in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. not allowed to use group policy as manger does not like it for deploying programs.

We have been using Kace to image and deploy here for 5 years. It cut the manpower to a third of what we needed with Novell. It has been easy to use and learn.
